Many would be shocked that one in six U.S. kids worry about when their next meal will come. As the recession deepens and unemployment rises, more American families face hunger for the first time. A record 30 million Americans depend on food stamps, and food banks face unprecedented demand.These staggering statistics inspired Indianapolis based, MediaSauce to launch a national, collaborative initiative that is leveraging the power of social media to secure up to 420,000 meals donated by, Arkansas based, Tyson Foods. MediaSauce launched Pledge to End Hunger, Thursday March 5 at 9am EST. Visitors to the website,www.pledgetoendhunger.com, can sign a pledge to end hunger by committing to give, volunteer or share the message with others.
